71. Going to and from clients' homes. And my clients were children.

One was pointed directly at me, from about 20 feet away, but they didn't shoot. Those appeared to be gang members. The second was someone shooting randomly into an enclosed courtyard where I was walking. Who knows what his past included? The third was a gunfight in which the shooters were subdued by the police right before I pulled around the corner. They caught one of the guys by slamming him into the car in front of me. So I guess technically that one wasn't pointed at me.

I have stopped doing that work. But the children I used to work with still live in places where this happens routinely.
